    I have tried everything but these won't light correctly! They are func_detail arches and are driving me crazy. I tried smoothing groups but no luck.

    lemme know if you have any ideas, I really don't want to ditch them. I also don't want to cut them up in to a bunch of smaller brushes because I fear going over my brush limit.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see the problem.

    if its about the textures that dont blend together.... i think you cant do much. Each face has its normal and rederects light and you will get this. If smoothing groups dont work.. i dont know sorry!

    I don't think it's much of a problem. Sure the shadows look a little odd, but I don't think it's to noticable.

    Mind explaining what was causing the problem and what fixed it?

    the arches that are lit incorrectly in the picture are a result of the walls extending behind the arches. I simply cut the walls at the edge of each arch and the problem fixed itself.

    Here is how scratch explained it:
